Shakti Ladakh

Shakti Ladakh has seven spacious and beautifully done up houses scattered around the valleys and a visit to each of them will make for a hugely rewarding journey. Some are close to the main monasteries and others are situated in stunningly beautiful, distant valleys.

Situated in the far north of the Indian Subcontinent at over 3500m (11,500ft), high on the western end of the Tibetan plateau, Ladakh is often referred to as ‘Little Tibet’. With a high altitude desert, dominated by rugged, snow-capped peaks, colourful oases, deep turquoise lakes, and studded with thriving Buddhist monasteries, it is one of the most picturesque places on earth. The strong Buddhist culture prevails and makes it a wonderfully warm and welcoming place to explore.


Combine rafting, bicycling, walking, picnics fit for kings, archery, village exploration, monastery visits, hours of relaxation time on a hot, sunny rooftop with a good book, a drink and a view from heaven; and you can’t want for much more out of a holiday.

Why we love this place

With much of Ladakh really being the preserve of the backpacker until recently, Shakti Ladakh has changed all that and a holiday to Ladakh makes the perfect summer holiday – relaxing, beautifully cared for, yet exhilarating!

Our Recommendation

Go to early morning prayers, raft down the Indus, bicycle down mountain trails and camp in untold luxury.
